Players who report to training camp are checked several times for COVID-19 before being allowed access to the team premises. Tuesday provided information on how many of those tests have been positive so far.
The NFLPA announced that 21 positive tests were performed during tests related to the training camp reporting process. Newcomers, injured players and quarterfinals were allowed to start reporting last week. Veterans from many teams announced the camp on Tuesday.
The Union did not publish the total number of tests performed or any exceptional early test results. They actually announced that a total of 107 players had a positive rating last year.
Players who test positive for COVID-19 will be placed on the reserve list until they are no longer symptomatic and / or receive multiple negative tests. Players who come into contact with an infected person will also be placed on that list, and the league will not announce the reason for the player’s inclusion on the list.
